Cornelia has to be one of the foremost authorities on the Medici family. Fascinating!
Cornelia was a great tour guide for our tour of the Boboli Gardens and the Pitti Palace, particularly the Palatine Gallery. Cornelia’s knowledge of the history of the palace and the Medici family, and her expertise in art history made it a very satisfying tour. Of course, there was so much to see in the gallery that we felt that we had only scratched the surface of what there was to see in the time available. However, we thought her approach of taking us to some of the major works and focusing on a few of the hundreds of paintings made a lot of sense. I look forward to taking some courses with Cornelia through Context Learning. (I really used it a lot during the pandemic but have signed up for fewer courses with life resuming its normal cadence and having the chance to travel again.)
Siro was very engaged in our experience and displayed his excitement in the art we discussed. He was an excellent tour guide at the Pitti Palace.
